Here’s a fun hanging mobile in our project queue:

Our clients are building a Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home in Maryland, and they requested a mobile that plays well with the components in their home.

Using the iconic art-glass Robie window style (pictured below) as inspiration, we incorporated strong black lines to mimic the window’s leaded components and a translucent material to mimic stained glass. The final piece will hang 14 feet tall by 6 feet in diameter. It will hang in the home’s two-story entryway.

CREATION Healthcare Mobile

Here’s a mobile we’re creating for a Tampa-based hospital that follows the CREATION healthcare philosophy.

The shapes represent each of the eight components of CREATION healthcare, and the three groupings, as illustrated in the bottom rendering, represent the interconnected relationship between body, mind, and spirit. The mobile also incorporates the eight colors of CREATION healthcare.

The final piece will hang 15 feet wide by 7 feet tall. We’re eager to see it come together!


Park Restaurant Ceiling Sculpture

Here are pictures of the restaurant ceiling sculpture fully installed! As you can see, the restaurant is still under construction—the bar top was being installed the day Matt and Ben arrived—but you can still get the feel for the great aesthetic of the space.

We imagine that bar area will be bustling, so the felt material of the ceiling sculpture should nicely dampen the noise

We can’t wait to see pictures of the restaurant once it’s complete. If you find yourself in Columbia, Missouri, be sure to eat at Park Restaurant (and then send us pictures)!

Restaurant Ceiling Sculpture Installation

Matt and Ben are in Columbia, Missouri as we speak, finishing up an installation for the bar area of a new restaurant.

Some hangups with installation site schedule required Matt and Ben to get creative with their time and resources. The work site wasn’t quite ready for them to access, so their rental minivan (randomly upgraded from economy) turned into an assembly workspace.

Once they were able to access the site, all went smoothly. Time consuming and tedious, but smoothly. Final installation pictures coming soon!


Valley Children's Hospital Mobile

Matt and Ben trekked to Bakersfield, California last week to install this massive Mosaic-inspired mobile in the new Valley Children’s Hospital.

The mobile’s pieces were so large that instead of building and shipping an enormous crate, the guys rented U-haul and drove 865 miles south. (And just hours after they drove through, a portion of I-5 was shut down for six days, due to wildfires!)

The installation went smoothly, and we’re thrilled with how well the mobile works with the space. (And the guys were especially thrilled to fly home instead of drive.)

Completed Copper Mobile

This copper mobile is finished and headed to its owners in Seattle. We can’t wait to see pictures of it hanging in its final home!

Restaurant Ceiling Sculpture Materials

Next month, we’re traveling to Missouri to install this ceiling sculpture in a brand-new restaurant. We designed the sculpture to incorporate felt shapes, helping the restaurant’s acoustics by absorbing noise from the bar area. The felt shapes will have a wood backing, to provide structure, and we’ll create sets of mini-mobiles strung together to span the bar area. Stay tuned for installation pictures!
